Te Araroa / The Long Pathway: This tramp is gonna be one of the longest in the world, and certainly by far the longest of New Zealand. All the way from Cape Reinga in the north to Bluff in the south, the trail will extend for 3000 km. The trail knits ma-ny shorter well known tracks together. In North Island it follows part of the east and west coast. In South Island the trail is on the spine of the island. For the most, the trail is ready. It should be complete by the end of 2010.
